    Ha Ha ! Connie now that I see your Epc. Middleburg 'Maj" mine has also disappeared. Just up and left!!!! I truly loved that plant. Very beautiful blooms.

    I have 2 Enc. alata in bloom right now. A small pot that has about 5 spikes, and a large specimen plant which has more than 12 spikes (I have not counted them yet). I will post the pic, when more of the buds open.

    Both of your plants are beautiful. Good growing.

    I just realized today I have this, close to blooming size, seeing yours gets me hopeful for mine, it's supposed to have a nice fragrance.

    Thank you, I look forward to your pictures. I think when I had my plants outside at the old house, someone was taking a few here and there because I haven't even got a tag in the pile they go in if I lost it to a bug or something. It just vanished. And it was a nice big one too...

    Its a cracker Connie.
    Nice to see Encyc. Alata too. I've been struggling with this for a few years , although I'm hoping that my current craze of growing so much on pieces of tree branch will bring success.

    The really large Encyclia that i've seen here were either mounted on wood or in a wood basket. The ones I have love baskets. In fact the larger the p-bulb gets, the better suited to a basket it gets. They get very heavy, especially in the summer when they get watered and fertilized with the vandas.

    I grow all my Encyclia in baskets, i have 4 or 5 and they all seem to like it that way. While in active growth I water 4 times a week and in our south florida winter I still keep them quite moist but not soggy. I have an Enc. nursery rhyme (quite a large plant almost 3 foot!) It has giant pseudobulbs and drinks water like a thirsty camel!

    I am an Encyclia lover. I have several large plants and am forever finding new hybrids to buy. They do very well in our backyard climate since some are native to this area. I barely have to bother with much more than spraying them for bugs occasionally. I have a couple plants that will get split shortly they've grown so large. I never dreamt when I began growing orchids that I would have plants this large. This website and the advice I got made learning to grow orchids so much easier!!
